Paper Abstract

Visible light electro-optical (E-O) sensors offer some impressive advantages compared to film. They are especially well suited for long-range oblique photographic (LOROP) applications because the platform stability required to make effective use of long focal length cameras and time delay integration (TDI) can be provided at long standoff ranges. Missions conducted with tactical sensors, or with focal lengths suitable for moderate standoff, suffer degraded resolution because evasive maneuvers are necessary for survival. This paper is a study of the degradation suffered during 3 to 5 g turns, with pushbroom sensors from 6 to 12 in. in focal length (fl), using state-of-the-art charge coupled devices (CCDs).
